SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Tybee Island is throwing a fit.


Former pro football player and Olympic fitness adviser Michael Banks is touring the country to give area residents what he's given dozens of athletes over the years.  Only this time, for free.

On Friday, July 2, Banks will host a workout session on the Tybee Island Pier from 8-10 a.m.  Banks is working the nation to stir up activity in Americans to fight obesity, start fresh and most of all to teach parents set better examples for children by modeling an active lifestyle.

"We want you to come out prepared for an amazing workout, learn about fitness and nutrition," he said.

"We're going to have fun. It doesn't matter what size or shape or condition you're in, just show up.  It's going to be a big party."

The event is open to all age groups.
